Everything You Need To Know About Today’s Launch

Today we’re excited to launch Jam Genies: a network of world-renowned experts at the ready to help you build a better website. Just choose a genie, pick a time, pay their one time fee, and Jam with them. It’s 1-1 help from experts with direct experience tackling your exact problem.

Say you’re a founder and you’re preparing to fundraise. With Genies, you can now book a session with an investor like Erik Torenberg and get his take on how your site comes across to investors. If you’re having trouble with referrals, you can summon a growth genie like Nicole Obst, the former Head of B2C Web Growth at Dropbox. If you’re having trouble with making your onboarding flow intuitive, you can summon a design genie like Abe Vizcarra, the former global design director at Snap.

The full list of genies available to be summoned are:
